SMASH 137 at Gallerie Celal – Paris, France

Our friend Smash just finished his “Grow Up!” exhibition in Paris.
You can see the video and his latest artworks right now…

In 1990, Smash137 discovers spray cans. He never left them since. His signature becomes for him a self-portrait, which he paints with style and precision across the world. Keen globetrotter and strict painter in his studio, this artist is quickly seen as one of the leaders of the graffiti movement. The museum of fine arts of Basel, his hometown, recognized his worth and invited him to exhibit as soon as 1997. His work then grows up between calligraphy and abstraction, in a very intimate and spontaneous approach of paper and canvas. In the 2000s, he enters galleries and museums of Australia, Mexico, the USA, Germany and France.
Grow up! That is the phrase Smash137 heard so often from the mouths of his parents, from the girls he loved,  and from some of his friends  when he was going out to paint, his backpack bursting with spray paint. Today, things have changed a bit…
